Forum: movies Subject: thumbnails not being generated

Thumbnails are not being generated for a video I submitted. The item is:
http://www.archive.org/details/scipy09_advancedTutorialDay1_4

I tried to rederive using the item manager. Still no thumbnails. From the processing log of the rederive, it looks like problem occurs with the command below. I don't know what this means: "exited with error retval:137". Can anyone provide help or suggestions?


warning: /petabox/sw/bin/timeout -s 9 3600 /usr/bin/ffmpeg -v 0 -i /tmp/derive/scipy09_advancedTutorialDay1_4/scipy09_advancedTutorialDay1_4.mp4 -an -s 160x90 -padtop 10 -padbottom 10 -padcolor 000000 -r 1 /tmp/derive-scipy09_advancedTutorialDay1_4-Thumbnails/%08d.jpg > /dev/null 2>&1 exited with error retval:137, but told to continue on...

hi there,
basically our deriver for making thumbnails is simply "running out of time" to complete it given the length of your video.

i'll try to recode how we do things so that perhaps monday or tuesday you will be able to re-derive the video again to get the thumbs (and anim GIF).

Thanks! Let me know when it's ready for me to do the re-derive.

ok, i just went ahead and re-derived your video and it worked fine.
i also ran over my standard battery of test videos (just to be safe)
and my "fix" should be fine for all videos now, too.

i'll be pushing the fix live momentarily...
